FLORENCE - I've seen a hotel or two in my day some shabby, some completely fabulous -- but nothing could've prepared me for my recent stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Firenze, a renovated palazzo in the heart of the Renaissance city.
Opened just three years ago, the property is unlike any other chain hotel I've ever visited. In the first place, it is a magnificent museum in and of itself. The more than 500-year-old Palazzo della Gherardesca has been lovingly restored -- right down to the original frescoed ceilings and on-site chapel -- by the local Fratini family, who are often seen around the hotel on Sundays.
